Harrison County Teen Killed In ATV Accident

A Harrison Central High School student was killed in an ATV accident Friday morning.

Stone County Coroner Mike Lott said Brandon Butler died after he lost control of the ATV on the gravel driveway leading from his grandparents house off Highway 26 near the Stone County/Pearl River County line.

The family told authorities the boy got on the ATV to make the quarter mile ride down the drive to get the morning paper. When the boy didn't return, his step-grandfather went looking for him.

Sheriff Mike Farmer says the family just recently moved to live near family because of hurricane damage to their home. Butler died of head and chest injuries.
